UPON ARRIVAL AT THE EVENT
Please refer to the “Schedule of Events” below for the timing schedule of race day morning relating to the distribution of timing chips, last-minute package pickup, the pre-race meeting, and age group assembly.
TIMING CHIPS & RACE NUMBERS: Parents are asked to ensure that each child picks up a timing chip on race day morning. The timing chip must be worn on the ANKLE only and their bib number (included in race bag) securely attached to the front of the shirt that is worn for the finish. Please ensure that each child is wearing their assigned race number (Bib) so that their name and number match our records. Check the label on their race bag and bib for name and age group category when picking up race packages. Please DO NOT REMOVE the tear off label of the bib as this will be used by the timers at the finish line.
CHANGES TO AGE GROUP: Children’s age category is based on their age as of December 31st of the race year. (To check if your
child is in the correct Age Group, please refer to the link “YHT Confirmation List”. Contact us if you wish to change the age information we have on record.
CHANGES TO AGE GROUP DISTANCES: Please review the age group triathlon distances for your child. If preferred, children may race in a younger age category upon request, and you may make this choice during the registration process. Once registered, please contact us to make any changes to age group categories. Category changes must be made at least 3 days prior to race day.
AGE GROUPS 4-5 and 6-7: The distances for these 2 groups are the same and we may group them together if numbers allow.
PLACEMENT OF BICYCLES & TRANSITION GEAR: The parking lot of Kinsmen Beach will be the transition area for the Young Hearts Triathlon. Bike racks will be available and areas designated specifically for each age group.
